U.S. Chamber of Commerce Threatens Trump USMCA Deal – Eliminate Steel/Aluminum Tariffs or No Support…

CTH has never hidden our disgust for the corrupt lobbying enterprise known as the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, and their President Tom Donohue.  No internal organization in modern history has done more to harm American workers and American industry than the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.  Their fraudulent and corrupt enterprise is a toxic threat to our economy.

Today the U.S. Chamber of Commerce issues a statement denouncing the trade strategy of the Trump administration and announcing their lobbying support for the USMCA trade agreement is contingent upon the removal of Steel and Aluminum tariffs.

As the Washington Times writes: “The Chamber had previously complained that the deal’s language limiting protections for investors and stiffening of the “rules of origin” for when autos can be duty-free were problematic.”  Put another way: Wall Street is angry their multinational constructs are not supported, and protecting U.S. workers from the predatory nature of global outsourcing is bad for their controlled market schemes.

Ultimately, Donohue’s biggest complaint -revealed by historic review- is that his organization didn’t get to write the USMCA trade agreement and were stopped from selling their special interest carve-outs to their corporate clients.

President Trump is the first modern U.S. president to stop the CoC from writing the trade agreement thereby stopping Donohue from selling his influence to the highest bidder.

In the heavily globalist TPP agreement (thankfully Trump abandoned), President Obama allowed the U.S. CoC full and autonomous control over the terms.  In exchange for control over content the U.S. CoC gave generous donations to Obama’s political allies.  Dubya Bush, Bill Clinton and H.W. Bush did the same thing; that’s also how the original NAFTA was written, and the reason for the global exploitation loophole.

It is actually refreshing to see a U.S. President and and economic policy team that are entirely independent from Wall Street influence.  If you peel all the skin from the corrupt DC onion, the inability of Donohue and his crony CoC to influence economic policy is exactly why our economy is growing independent of the global markets.

President Donald Trump, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross and U.S. Trade Ambassador Robert Lighthizer will go down in history as the greatest assembly of economic warriors/strategists ever.

What the people of France, Brazil, Poland, Hungary, Italy and perhaps even Mexico, are expecting and demanding is exactly the economic nationalism that President Trump and team are delivering for the U.S.A.

Few people actually comprehend the scale of President Trump and how his America First MAGAnomic program is destroying the tentacles of influence from a multinational global financial network.

The ongoing U.S. trade reset is the biggest, most consequential and most significant national security initiative in our lifetime. Nothing else is even close….

  2. I think this will be appropriate space to mention – since past few weeks on WMAL station (DC/VA/MD area) CoC is advertising heavily suggesting to call congressman/woman/uniparty/President to get rid of tariffs because it is “hurting” our farmers. Do not know if they are doing the same advertisement on other radio stations that primarily airs conservative or pro-(President) Trump talk shows.

    Fellow treepers, any inputs if it is happening in your area too?

        Calling him out is good, but I’d like to see him walk the dog on the entire globalist scam and what it means to the U.S. middle class, what it does for the 1 percent, and most importantly what it means to the next gen.

      Sundance is being kind. Donohue is the most vile and loathsome dirtbag in DC, and that says a lot since the whole town is filled with slime. The anti American scum CofC is an organization that should be run out of business.

    I hope and pray those tentacles of globalist influence can be completely destroyed. I pray daily this President will be allowed to continue his America-loving agenda.

    Lest we forget, the chamber of crony capitalists is also all-in for open borders. Important UN pow wow on Tuesday wherein many nations are lined up to surrender their sovereignty in the name of “human rights.”

    The UN conference on refugees and migrants, or whatever they are calling it, is nothing but a suicide pact for the western world. Expect all the usual globalist suspects, including France’s Macron, to sign it.

  9. “U.S. Department of Commerce will issue antidumping duty and countervailing duty orders” on CHINA!

    CPC’s opportunity to self correct aluminum & steel dumping vanished with ruling & tariff.

    If China thought Sec. Ross would be sitting on his hands, GUESS WHAT!

          You had me there,very good analogy.had to go look it up,
          “Mister Geppetto (/dʒəˈpɛtoʊ/ jə-PET-oh; Italian: [dʒepˈpetto]),[1] also Mastro Geppetto, is a fictional character in the novel The Adventures of Pinocchio by Carlo Collodi. Geppetto is an elderly, impoverished woodcarver and the creator (and thus ‘father’) of Pinocchio. He wears a yellow wig resembling cornmeal mush (called polendina), and consequently his neighbors call him “Polendina” to annoy him. The name Geppetto is a diminutive form of Giuseppe (Joseph). “

    CoC is also China’s tool, so they are losing doubly with POTUS and his Wolverines taking point. No moolah from honorable Chinese communists and no moolah from wall street wannabees.

    Trump eluded to this a few weeks back. Since the Dems took control of the House of Representatives these negotiated trade deals have been at risk. The US Chamber of Commerce is a nasty, self serving, organization that represents global trade interests; certainly not American Main Street interests. I will be surprised if these trade deals ARE confirmed in congress and the US doesn’t then once again end up with huge trade deficits benefitting the One World Order economic interests. It will take awhile, but we could easily end up like France.
